Pooches and Pickups Winner and a Market Bag

Wow! What a tremendous response!! Thanks so much for all the great feedback and encouragement. I'm so thrilled to hear such excitement about the designs. The line holds a soft spot in my heart so I hope you guys really have fun sewing with this line. It sounds like there are some really cute quilts, stroller blankies, picnic blankets, appliqued tshirts and even a few PJ pants planned. And I really loved getting to read your great stories about your pooches (and kitties and chickens!). Thanks for sharing them with me.

I've just finished drawing the winners using the random number generator and 2 lucky ladies have FQ sets of Pooches and Pickups shipping out to them on Monday. Congrats to #59 - missbossypants and #139 euphoria. I hope you love the fabric and will share pictures of what you make in my Flickr Group!

The team at Robert Kaufman designed this adorable type treatment for Pooches & Pickups. So cute, huh?
I've been wanting to try out the Jane Market Bag pattern from Alicia Paulson of Posie Gets Cozy and I thought Pooches and Pickups would make a cute little bag to take to the farmer's market. I love the way it turned out. Alicia's pattern was super easy to follow and the bag came together in a snap. I think I may have to make a few more! If you have any other easy peasy patterns for home goods or accessories, I'd love to hear about them. I'm always on the hunt for cute and easy projects to work on :)
